Lucy's Adoption Day

I am so emotionally exhausted from the day but I thought I better get some pictures up of Lucy's adoption day so you could see them. My BF ,Wendy Penberthy came to court and so did my amazing sister, Hollie (who Lucy is named after..Lucy Ann) It was a great day! Here is Aunt Hollie with Lulu.Swearing in.

Tearing up as the Judge was explaining that she was going to be our daughter.

The Judge always gives the adoptee a stuffed animal when they are adopted. Ivy got one today too.

Hey, I'm an Elliott!
Thank you so much for your prayers. I will start her adoption story on here soon.


  1. Man, Kelli I am THRILLED for you guys!!! Praise the Lord!! What a special day and such incredible memories were made. That is one blessed child to have you for a family, and the Lord is so merciful to give such a precious child to you after all you've been through. It was a long road but now you can let out a sigh of relief and praise. I hope to join you really soon in being a permanent family. It must feel so great to be done with all the paperwork, socialworkers, etc. I can't wait. Looks like you were at Edmund Edelman Children's you never have to go back again!
    I can't wait to here her adoption story!

  2. So amazing, so exciting, what a blessing and a joy! I am SO happy for you guys and it is suchg a joy to have seen God bring her to your family! She is YOURS!!!

  3. After all the tears what a joy, praise the Lord for His perfect plan!! We love you guys much and can't wait to see the Lord continue to grow your sweet family!

    Your continually in our prayers,
